About This Event

ARRAY\'s special tribute to the vital, groundbreaking career of filmmaker Mira Nair as her landmark films MONSOON WEDDING and MISSISSIPPI MASALA celebrate their 20-year and 30-year anniversaries respectively. Filmmaker Q&A with Mira Nair + ARRAY Founder Ava DuVernay in advance of the screening.\ \ The vibrant cultures of India, Uganda, and the American South are blended and simmered into a rich visual tapestry in Mira Nair’s luminous and seminal second fiction feature starring Denzel Washington opposite Sarita Choudhury. After Mina\'s Indian family is ousted from their home in Uganda by dictator Idi Amin, they relocate to Mississippi to start a new life. Mina falls for Demetrius, a young carpet cleaner, despite the protests of their families over their racial difference. The families and their surrounding communities begin to feud, putting even more pressure on the couple\'s romance. Having to choose between family and love, Mina and Demetrius run away together. This special preview of the 2021 4K restoration of MISSISSIPPI MASALA is presented for ARRAY\'s community courtesy of Janus Films.\ \ About the Filmmaker: Mira Nair is an Academy-Award nominated director best known for her visually dense films that pulsate with life. Her debut feature, Salaam Bombay! (1988) won the Caméra d’Or at Cannes, followed by the groundbreaking Mississippi Masala, the Golden Globe & Emmy-winning Hysterical Blindness (2001) and the international hit Monsoon Wedding (2001), for which she was the first woman to win Venice Film Festival’s coveted Golden Lion.\ \ A fiercely independent filmmaker, she then made Vanity Fair (2004), The Namesake (2006), The Reluctant Fundamentalist (2012), and Queen of Katwe (2016). Nair\'s recent Limited Series for BBC/Netflix is an adaptation of Vikram Seth’s epic tale, A Suitable Boy (2020), a sprawling tale of identity and love in a newly independent India. Currently, Nair is directing the pilot of the series National Treasure for DisneyPlus and JBTV. I
